Rainy Day Fun: No Cook DIY Playdoh

For Those Days When You’re Stuck Inside, Hiding From The Rain…

So, I’ve noticed over the past week that my kids seem to be getting quite bored with me which only results in toddler/preschooler fits and tantrums. And, we can only watch so much tv til my eyes start to bug out and my over stimulation switch is flipped and I’m the one throwing fits and tantrums.

Not Good…

So, I, in my ultimate wisdom yell out, “It’s playdoh time!” Everyone is cheering and singing, I’m turning off the tv and then BAMB…oh yeah, I threw all the playdoh away last month cause those awesome kids of mine enjoy leaving it out til it’s a prehistoric rock and then in my motherly frustration, over their cleaning up habits, I trash it…all.


I run to Google and look for a quick, no cook, no tartar DIY playdoh recipe. I find one….I have all the needed
